North East Bytes - Microsoft Technology Usergroup in the North East of England

Ben & Jon - Retiring from NEBytes

First off Happy New Year folks - yes, yes we're way into the new year but still, new years mean new starts. As anyone who was present at the latest event in December will know Jon and I have decided to take a step back from the montly running of NEBytes.

I first met Jon and Andy through the VBUG series of user groups where they announced they were looking to startup a Microsoft focused, technical user group in Newcastle. The goal was to run monthly sessions for both IT Pros and Developers and I think it is safe to say that we acheived what we set out to do. Now as NEBytes heads into it's 7th year with 78 events under it's belt I think the time is right for me to have a bit of an "NEBytes pause" and become involved in some other community activities and user groups (prehaps even try to blog again :o )

Thats not to say that NEBytes is going anywhere, Damien is still involved as is Derek who came on board last year and has been the driving force behind all of the recent events. I'm sure that NEBytes will remain strong this year and beyond.

It also means that we'd be more than delighted to have some extra pairs of hands onboard to help with the organising and coordination of events/speaks. If you would like to be involved please drop us a comment or make contact.

So for now, from Jon and Myself, Goodbye and thanks for all the fish!
